Expert panel set up to find residuary Andhra Pradesh`s capital
New Delhi: The central government Friday constituted an expert committee to study the various alternatives regarding the new capital for the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh folowing the decision to create Telangana, said an offical release.
"The committee will study various alternatives for locating the new capital of the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh and make appropriate recommendations in pursuant to section 6 of Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act 2014," the release said.
The committee is chaired by KC Siva Ramakrishnana, a retired Indian Administrative Service officer. It will submit its report by Aug 31.
The other members of the committee are Rathin Roy, director, National Institute of Public Finance and Policy; Aromar Revi, director, Indian Institute for Human Settlements; Jagan Shah, director, National Institute of Urban Affairs; and KT Ravindran, former dean, School of Planning and Architecture.
Parliament had earlier this year given its nod for bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and creation of a new state of Telangana. The government had proposed that Hyderabad will be the joint capital of the two states for 10 years.
